Good grief. Its just lucky for me they dont have websales. Chinese pots on iron stands are to die for as are the Vietnamese pottery.
I love the kritters.
keep me away before I go nuts.

Potrisers are what I was going to mention. That's gotta be my recommendation that you're talking about. I've been using them for years. Thumbs up

My pots have permanent lifts made from pieces of counter top. The purchased terrecotta feet slip in and out of the edges of containers seasonally.
I cant lift those big containers twice a year to position feet.
Forgot the large feet last fall and many have split and dissolved in the winter freezes the pieces will be drainage junk in the bottoms of new pots. I wont purchase new ones.

I never thought about that. Great cheap idea! Thumbs up

Can they be left outside under the containers in the Winter?

Pot Risers can be left outside under the container in the Winter and that's why I like them.
